  • “Us and Them”: The Paradoxes of Differences and Inequality in a Global Age

    November 11, 2015 09:30 AM - 03:15 PM

    Over the last half century, political and intellectual discourse has made us aware of the complex and multidimensional relationships between social “difference” and “inequality.” In this global age, the intersections of gender, class, race, sexuality, age, ability, and nationality pro-vide rich contexts for exploring the production and management of “difference” in everyday lives of communities; emerging multiple and intersecting identities; the dynamics of power and marked “bodies;” and social processes of exclusions and production of hierarchies.
